      Thanks man! I’ve been having difficulty working out how to use the internet and this is very helpful.

      Let me just get it clear in my head: If I have a problem with the content of a website, I post a comment demanding that it “Go away.”
      I’m such an eejit: I had been shrugging and moving on without comment to things I do enjoy.

        Now you got it. And if doesn’t go away immediately, use an expletive. And if still no satisfaction, be rude about a group of people you regard as being ‘others’.

        yep, just to be clear, I wasn’t saying go away to the content I was saying go away to Panti who I don’t class as an “other”. I just cant believe a person has written a book off the back of an interview that caused a bit of a stir. it’s the equivalent of Jordan’s autobiography. utter horsesh!t

          and obviously having read an advance copy of the book you know that the only significant thing to have happened in her life is 1 RTE interview. Thanks I was really looking forward to reading it but after your comment I won’t bother.

          Those gays and their agendas. That cunning speech commercially calculated to exploit these nefarious messages. Why can all gays be subversive and on the fringes of society like the gays and drag queens of yore. They should never form part of your mainstream. Cretin.

          Which one of Jordon’s autobiographies pissed you off the most, she’s written or had written 5 :)

          Being Jordan (2004)
          A Whole New World (2006)
          Pushed to the Limit (2008)
          You Only Live Once (2010)
          Love, Lipstick and Lies (2013)

          (and 8 novels, holy fupp…. like ya, whatever… who buys this sh*t)

            So you’re saying one book by an Irish transvestite entertainer at a time of shifting societal attitudes to LGBT issues is equivalent to that lot? Maybe it’s just not for you and you should live and let live.

          2. chimpy

            yep, you’re probably right. I’ve never seen such a backlash to such a throwaway comment I made. I’ll leave it there so. I’m backing slowly out of the room…

            Drag queen, not transvestite.
            Transvestite is male tomboy, drag queen is gay man in a dress.
            Eddie Izzard covered it in Dress To Kill.

            Chimpy, of all the things going on in modern Ireland, getting incenced at a transvestite getting a book deal is downright peculiar.

            There’s a little bit more to Rory O Neill than just the recent debacle. If there wasn’t, why would he have been on the Late Late in the first place?
            OK – perhaps that’s not a great indicator, but there’s a lot more to the guy than one interview and why not capitalise on those who saw his speech and wanted to find out more?

    The new cover is excellent..
    I as a fellow woman use that exact body language when trying not to emit flatulence.
    It’s uncanny.

    Go get a time machine, go back to 1975 when drag queens were last shocking and stay there

        I bet you guys also proclaim “so what he/she’s gay, what’s the big deal!?” loudly when sportstars come out.

        1. chimpy

          Nope. If you want to look at any other comment ive ever made on this site you’ll see that I’m a fairly reasonable person.

    1. Jordofthejungle

      Diddums, should all gays get back into the closet too? Is that where you would like them? Are the only acceptable gays the subversive, underground and dangerous ones? Moron

        Sorry but I’m all Pantied out. Just how long can one dine out for on an unoriginal story that’s been told in a million other peoples lives. Let’s dig up Danny La Rue!

        1. Nigel

          So… a story with a certain universality that might strike a chord with about a million other people? You actually make it sound relevant and contemporary and important.

        1. Nigel

          You want to set limits on the amount of attention someone gets based on arbitrary criteria to do with your sense of how much they are entitled to?

    As a by the by can anyone tell us’ how many times Broadsheet ‘s prominent restauranteur slash publican superhero Jay Bourke gets a mention
